Newfoundland’s Green Hydrogen Project


Mar 29 2023 • 37 mins

This week Frank Davis, Assistant VP, Green Hydrogen and Canada Country Head at Pattern Energy joins as our guest.  Pattern Energy is developing a green hydrogen project at the Port of Argentia in Newfoundland and Labrador. The project will use renewable electricity to produce green hydrogen and convert it into ammonia.

Here are some of the questions that Jackie and Peter asked Frank: Tell us about the different parts of the project (electricity production to hydrogen and ammonia). Why did you select the province of Newfoundland and Labrador? How do you manage the variability of renewable power while running the ammonia plant 24/7? How much does the cost of green ammonia compare with hydrogen produced from fossil fuels? Would you look for 10 or 20 year take-or-pay contracts before proceeding with the project or is it a merchant model? How does Canadian policy for green hydrogen compare with the U.S. Inflation Reduction Act (IRA)?
